We explore a novel simulation route for Plasma Wakefield Acceleration (PWFA) by using the computational method known as the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). LBM is based on a discretization of the continuum kinetic theory while assuring the convergence toward hydrodynamics for coarse-grained fields (i.e., density, velocity, etc.). LBM is an established numerical analysis tool in computational fluid dynamics, able to efficiently bridge between kinetic theory and hydrodynamics, but its application…

A fluorescence-imaging-based endoscopic capsule that automates the detection process of colorectal cancer was designed and developed in the lab and offered great possibilities for future applicability in selective and specific detection of other fluorescently labelled cancers.
